works. obviously the big story is the climate story and what happened in copenhagen a few weeks ago. i have been astonished watching the globals then after the copenhagen meeting. what happened there is perceived completely differently in europe than it is here and in utterly differently in india then it is in europe, so if you track the flow of blogs and columns that are coming across on this, the assessment ranges from catastrophe to success. my sense of the story is there were actually to copenhagen meetings. there was a formal treaty negotiation that has been going on a essentially since the united states framework convention on climate change was ratified by 190 some nations back in the early 1990's and culminated in copenhagen, and there was a very brief 12-hour head of state negotiation that took place at the end of the copenhagen meeting. the first negotiation, the formal one, failed. the second one, i will talk about that a little more in a moment but i want to give you some background to understand what was happening there. every discussion of international climate change neg

and the countdown to copenhagen 15, which was such a great disappointment. we have now joined by lars vattenfhor. we heard earlier this week, of course, from the president talking about infrastructure, as well as there's big pressures on energy infrastructure at the moment, as well well. how are we, in the failure of copenhagen and the squeezing budgets, it's all about the budget being squeezed this week in europe in particular. how is that going to impact investment in europe in energy infrastructure? >> well, it's all about investment, you can say. and that i mean energy security. i mean climate change. i mean jobs, i mean growth. clearly, what has happened in copen hague.en or what did not happen in copenhagen means higher uncertainty, less investments and a delay. >> but all this pressure, as well, is on government budgets. you can't open a paper. and we talked to jean claude trichet yesterday, the greek prime minister, alistair darling in the uk, you can't open a paper without the discussion of governments having to get down their budget deficit. how is that going impact? >> i think it's going

-- they stay at a really nice hotel. they stayed at the marriott in copenhagen when they went to the climate summit. it was five star. it was $2200 per night. each one of the congressmen had a bill for $4400. now, that is obviously way north of what the average american spends even on their mortgage payments. and that was just for two days of fun over in copenhagen. >> it was guys and gals. there were republicans and democrats there. the total bill was $404,000. here to me was the most disturbing part of this is that when these members of congress were questioned about this kind of expenditure and using taxpayer money, many of them said they'd never seen the bills or the expense reports. isn't there an inherent problem in that? that, i guess, we have so much tax money from all of us to just throw around that nobody bothers to look at how much things cost? this is what henry waxman had to say about it, democrat from california. i was there because i thought it was important for me to be there. i didn't look at it as a pleasure trip. only problem is i think the average american would look at $
in copenhagen where you saw president obama having to wrestle with all these tensions. can you imagine the nerve it took to walk into closed-door sessions as the president blowing at diplomatic protocol, wrenching the copenhagen assembly out of its original approach and into something new and doing this not knowing if it was going to work. in the article, i wrote about an important moment for president obama and he would get to this one way or another. this would be in the summer of 1864 near the end of president lincoln's first term. he reelection campaign is going and it is not going well. in fact, he in of the political experts in the country think he is going to lose. furthermore they think he is going to lose to general mcclellan who will not pursue lankan score policies in the civil war. lincoln, at that point, is living with the idea that he said hundreds of thousands of young men to their deaths for a failed war. he will be known as the president to failed to hold the union together. he is getting up every morning with that knowledge, living with a wife who was, frankly at times, psychot
the stage for further cooperation with china in preparation for the copenhagen conference on climate change. he discussed exchange rates and trade, clean energy, military to military exchanges, human rights, and stopping the spread of nuclear weapons. we outline the key of compliments of the visit in a joint statement issued by president obama and president hu jintao on november 17. it has been said before that in order to get china right, you have to get the region right. the united states is a vital contributor to asian security and economic prosperity. our active presence in asia helps promote regional security and stability. we intend to deepen our engagement and strengthen our leadership in the region by strengthening our commitments to allies and partners, and enhancing our involvement in regional institutions. and the secretary addressed these issues, as well as our presence in the region, in an important speech in honolulu yesterday. the president's trip to china demonstrates that fact in the region demonstrate the importance we place on east asia which remains vital to u.s. securit
because of rookie mistakes like that? >> that is a rookie mistake. if obama can go to copenhagen to try to get the olympics to chicago, clearly he can go to boston to rally a demoralized base and make sure that democrats turn out. if democrats turn out, democrats will win. >> those are not two popular -- he did not get the olympics for chicago. and he did not get the climate change deal. >> but doing nothing is not an option. his domestic agenda hangs in the balance. it's important to go up there today to rally people. to get the obama voters who came out in 2008, to go to the polls. and explain the difference between voting for miss coaxially. i wish we had more time. we could go down and call the row, from the economy, to the health care, to the serious troubles that this country faced. and demonstrate, how this president has led by example. but he's going up there. it's the right thing to do. >> i think it's a wake-up call. i know everybody says she's run a lackluster campaign. it's massachusetts. but it's a wake-up call that democrats cannot run as a managerial party moving forward.

that is not the number one issue to them? why is it important to fly to copenhagen not once, but twice, first for the olympics but to attend a global warming conference in the middle of a blizzard? i am not saying that to be snarky, but i am asking the questions. why are we listening to people when they say they are starving for jobs? why don't we let the 16 million plus one man in thisç country o currently own all or part of a small -- 16 million pluswomen in this country who currently own all or part of a small business and those that would like to create little bit of nest egg and flexibility and ownership for their small businesses. why can they allow them to flourish ratherxd than try to suffocate them from the i]beginning? i want1e to read some of these numbers for you. i am lookingç atçó over 30 crod tabs here, and we compiled this from a number of polls so the sample size is taken from over 3000 people in eachçym of the january 2009 and january 2010, soççç overall full year. qprerw"ent obama's approval single group with the exception w3)p#rican-american voters. qhew3xd
to gut it copenhagen twice, first to sell the olympics and then to attend a global warming conference in the middle of a blizzard? i am asking the question -- why are we listening to people when they say they are starving for jobs? why are they looking for economic rebounds? what we look at the 16 million women who currently own all or part of a small business? think of the end told business -- the untold millions of other americans who would like to harness their entreprenuers as somism, why can we allow them to flourish instead of suffocating them from the beginning? let me read lament -- some of these numbers to you. we've compiled this from a number of national polls so that the sample size is taken from over 3000 people in each of these three-month period between january 2009 and january 2010, over a full year now. president obama's approval ratings has declined among every single group with the exception of african-american voters. he is down 1% among self identified liberal democrats. it down 3% among democrats. down 15% among independents. 15% among women. every gender, every
briefly about it in copenhagen. i am worried about the bigger picture. the buy america provisions have cause some disruption. but the back -- the vast majority of our trade with united states is still your intent free beer the real problem is when you see country -- not just the united states -- using a stimulus package to bring in protectionist measures. we all know that what the biggest danger to the global recovery is the spread of protectionism. it has been global trade that has driven growth over the past generation. we would like to see that sustain going forward. we took the very opposite approach. we not only did not put any protectionist members -- measures but repeal -- repeal the number of terrorists in order to stimulate economic activity both here and abroad. that -- repeal of a number of terror acariffs in order to stie economic activity both here and abroad. >> that in many other topics still to come. >> mr. harper, please do something about the environment now. >> is also compelling concerns there about the environment, prime minister. there is a copenhagen accord, but
, such as the u.n. human rights council, and was recently the copenhagen climate change conference, which demonstrated spectacularly the fatuousness of such international structures, eye of common purpose, a common interest,, and governance. and yet the value of these international institutions and paper agreements seems to leave no lasting impression. did we really learn nothing from the early 20th-century experience, with its repeated and dimmed attempts to regulate the capital ships of the great powers for unable conferences? did we really learn nothing from the kellogg pact, whose signatories incidently included germany and japan? it abolished war forever. and inserted a that the u.s. secretary of state won the nobel peace prize. sound familiar? but at least they ashley sign be useless treaty. obama got it for imagined useless treaty, most notably the one he has been insisting on from prague to new york on universal nuclear disarmament. the night it of obama can be seen in his most recent poll, the dramatic -- the most dramatic of which appeared on september 24, one day after obama sp
is the security of the citizens. >> thank you mr. speaker. given the disappointing finish to the copenhagen conference what action can my honorable friend tell us he will be taking in order to keep the momentum up on this absolutely vital task of climate change? >> mr. speaker, for the first time the world was able to agree that we should not have a climate change policy that did not address the problems of rising temperatures and the 2% limit was agreed by all countries. we also have agreement countries will notify what they will do by 2020 and they've got to do so by january 31st. we are obviously pressing countries to be in the position they can reduce the amount of gigatons in carbon and greenhouse gas emissions from the mid 50's in 2020 to the mid 40's and there has been a great transparency achieved with every country agreeing to report what they are doing that we have not yet got the international duty that we need and we haven't yet got the announcement from all countries they support the 50% reduction by 2015. that is what is still to be done and i agree we must not talk to all tho
not only the grain economy but the climate change problem. the failure of the copenhagen meeting conference was not only partly a question the difficulties to agree on goals among the different players, but also behind this the fact that it is a huge amount of resources to do something attractive and, you know, people are talking about a billion a year figure when you listen to what has been said by the main leaders in copenhagen that you have 1 million plus one plus one in 1015, but so it's another magnitude if we really want to address this problem it is as big for the future of mankind as many say and i do believe is true there we need to find more innovative ways of financing and certainly from this point of view the input of of the imf may be helpful. well, thank you very much. i'm sorry to keep peace so late.

of the 2-20 was the shape of the emerging world. i looked back to the scene at copenhagen where the president burst into the room, but who is in the room? brazil, india, china, what is the arrangement of these new power arrangements? secondly, looking forward to the end of his first term, what is it reasonable to ask of this president in shaping what is reasonable to ask of this president in shaping -- >> what is reasonable to ask of this president in shaping this presidency. >> i am not so sure that it is a post american world. -- post-american world. we aren't indispensable nation, -- we are an indispensable nation. in asia, i thought that the coverage of obama's relations with asia was poor. when he came back from asia, the prime minister of india came to the white house for a state visit and obama is effectively in certain the united states into haitian politics and recognizing the degree to which of the rising powers of asia turned to the united states for some kind of leverage and balance. . . obama seems to be moving toward this new alignment. personally, i think this rei
in copenhagen where he said, the problem is the white people in the world. the second question is there is a country -- a company in brazil that is an offshore drilling company that in june, the obama administration gave a $15 billion loan to and i think is quite ironic that in february, george soros bought majority shares in that company. effectively, this administration has paid back george soros for getting elected with taxpayer funds. guest: i do not know anything about the second issue, but i can comment on the first. the brazilian president is a colorful, charismatic leader. then he has been for some to, to a half years. very annoyed that they have had to do things that the united states and europe-not have to do. and he has -- have not had to do. and he has been very open about saying that they have not had to do things that they've had to do in developing countries. host: salt lake city, democratic cruller. caller: we have -- and democratic collar. host: we have more natural gas than any of the country. wyoming has a huge amount. we have not even put pipelines for the n
. >> for the president still believes he can get something passed very similar to go yes. could the copenhagen entourage. have you been able to find anything out on the number of administrative officials. how many and the administration went and you have any idea what the cost was? >> ben is working on finding out information for you. the president and members of his cabinet that deal with clean energy issues and creating a clean energy economy travelled to copenhagen. as many of you are aware, the president himself was on the ground less than 24 hours. we did not spend the night. a very small number of white house staff were on the ground prior to get him -- prior to him getting there. >> congress had more than 100 people there. they had more than 300 hotel nights. it took three large government planes to get them there plus a lot of other people flew commercial. this cost even enter the equation on something, and let me add to that, but there is evidence that there was a much larger contingent from the administration, more than 100. >> ben is on -- ben is working on information for you on that. i will
talk a little bit about energy but not much about copenhagen again or climate change and the development agenda with regard to adaptation and mitigation. >> thank you, hattie. has you know, we are very committed to a program of supporting adaptation and mitigation and technology transfer in the developing world. i went to copenhagen and announced that the united states would commit to do our part of $100 billion by 2020. we worked very hard to get the building blocks of an agreement that would enable us to do so. the accord that we finally hammered out did have requirements for verification and transparency which have to be adhered to in order for us to be able and, frankly, willing to make these investments. but i think that for many of the developing countries, this is a lifeline that they are desperate to have and that they will work with us as we try to sort out how best to deliver on that commitment. this is going to be an ongoing challenge and that is why i mention we have to do a better job of getting some of the other countries that have a role to play more co
, of course, to various parties such as the u.n. human rights council and the copenhagen climate change conference which demonstrated spectacularly the fatuousness of such international structures, the lack of common purpose, interest, and governance. yet, the failure of these international institutions and paper agreements seems to leave no lasting impression. did we really learn nothing from the early 20th century experience? did we really learn nothing from the kellogg pact whose signatories included germany and japan that abolished war forever? it won kellogg the peace prize in 1929. sound familiar? at least he got it for an actually signed useless treaty. obama got it for the imagined it useless treaty's most notably the one he has been insisting on for universal nuclear disarmament. the deaths of obama's 98 internationalism can be seen in his pursuit of this deeply and serious blow. this occurred on september 24th, one day after his speech to the general assembly when he asked -- when he ostentatiously presided over the security council, the first time an american president has ev
instance, the president of the united states removes himself to copenhagen to bring home the chicago olympics. it removes himself to copenhagen for climate change. he removes himself to oslo to receive a prize, but he doesn't show up in berlin on the 20th anniversary of an event of biblical proportion, one that i'm sure most of us in the room would never imagine we would ever see. that shows you how he sees the world, reinforces that quotation. i mean, i could have used one of dozens. but the one i chose it from was the address of the general assembly, in which you can see his priorities. and to speak of the cold war divisions, sort of arbitrary and not to see how rooted they were in the fundamental values of the united states and the west, as cleavages of some obsolete conflict, is simply staggering. but it tells you a lot about his worldview. and i thought the berlin event was very, very telling. particularly, as you say, leaving out the great figures that reagan, thatcher, pope john paul, sharansky, sakharov, and others. gorbachev was the hapless caretaker. to his credit come he d
